Electric scooter retailer eyes State Street

An Illinois businessman is hoping to open an electric scooter retail store at 513 State St. that would employ up to eight people, according to madison.com.

Ron Glogovsky wants to open a Numi Scooters showroom here, and is also looking for showroom locations in New York, Florida, and California. His company is the exclusive North American dealer for the Numi brand, which is popular in Europe.

Meanwhile, another electric scooter retailer, Flux Mopeds, has moved from Monroe Street to 1718 S. Park St., where co-founder Matt Brueggeman hopes to transition to a Flux scooter manufacturing facility by 2017.
